HTC Hits the US Market with Several New Smart Devices

The incredible lack of smartphones at this year's CTIA is beyond disappointing. However, there were a few Windows-powered devices announced for the US market from HTC , which seems to be holding the lone banner of enterprise mobility at CTIA Wireless 2007.

The incredible lack of smartphones at this year's CTIA is beyond disappointing. However, there were a few Windows-powered devices announced for the US market from HTC , which seems to be holding the lone banner of enterprise mobility at CTIA Wireless 2007.HTC bowed two new enterprise devices today at CTIA Wireless. The HTC Shift is a completely new take on mobile computing. It is an ultra small form factor that is aiming for the laptop replacement segment. It runs a full version of Windows Vista and has a full qwerty keyboard complete with 3G wireless connectivity. It has a 7-inch screen widescreen touch display and a 30 GB hard drive. The Shift comes with just about every type of wireless connection option you can think of: tri-band UMTS/HSDPA and quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth. It will run full versions of all Vista software, so enterprise users will now have access to all their productivity tools in a much smaller package.

The HTC Advantage is more in line with the smartphone-centric Windows Mobile devices we've seen from HTC. Similar to previous designs, it packs a lot into a small form factor. It has all the same wireless capabilities as the Shift, but has a thin qwerty keyboard that is connected magnetically. It has a 5-inch VGA screen, 8 GB hard drive, and 128 MB of RAM.

Both devices will be available through regular HTC channels later this summer. No price points were revealed.
